The dining area has a large French oak table with matching chairs and benches and sits next to the open plan kitchen which is equipped with full sized appliances.

There is a dedicated parking place in the secure underground car park and the lift will take you to the apartment door.
Flims Waldhaus is a quiet but convenient part of Flims with a small supermarket and a good selection of restaurants, cafes and bars. The best hotels are located here and are set close to the woods which lead down to the Rhine River gorge.
In winter the Flims Laax Falera area has some of the world's best skiing with over 235km of piste, 'free ride' routes (not pisted) and untouched off piste areas. It's a major destination for freestyle skiers and snowboarders with large freestyle parks, half-pipes and a dedicated freestyle piste. Major competitions are held here each year. There are also many walking trails, which link most of the good mountain restaurants, and toboggan runs in Flims and Falera. The ski area has a total vertical drop of about 2000m and the longest run is 17km. The lift system is highly efficient with lift queues rare even at the busiest time of year and the entire area is completely interlinked. The Daily Telegraph described Flims as skiing's best kept secret but to the Swiss it's the resort of choice for those living in Zurich, less than an hour an a half away by car. For more information please see the Laax.com website.
Flims has been a summer destination for over 100 years and is known for its Lake Cauma which is turquoise in colour and is fed from underground and warmed slightly as it fills up each spring. Here one can lie by the lake, swim to the pontoons and dive off boards as if on a regular beach holiday. Dozens of well kept paths are available for walking and cycling. For the brave there are cycle tracks from the ski lifts with ramps and jumps. Five minutes walk away from the apartment the woods open up into a clearing where children can play on swings and a zip wire and where there is a large barbecue provided, including also the firewood. The apartment has a large balcony which allows views in two directions taking in both pretty Swiss houses and the mountains.

Flims offers the chance of a perfect destination for summer or winter with easy access from Zurich airport. Several visits, encouraged back by the wonderful ski school, led us to eventually buy an apartment in a 'haus' of 12. We are always sad to leave.
The apartment in Flims is well designed and beautifully made. Everything works and it lends itself beautifully to an active holiday needing very little effort for everyday tasks and leaving the maximum time for enjoying the mountains, the paths through the woods and the lakes. Staying in though is very relaxing and in summer sitting at the large table on the balcony and admiring the view or reading a book can be the perfect way to wind down. For those wanting a good value holiday the supermarket and bakery are very close and for those who want to do as little catering as possible there is a cafe almost next door and there are many restaurants an easy walk away. Flims Waldhaus even has its own brewery - started in 2005.
My friends and I really enjoyed our stay at John's apartment. It is very well managed and equipped. There is ski bus 15 right at the door or just a few steps to the frequent no.1. Not to miss the Las Caglias restaurant not far from the apartment too!
John is very helpful and responsive. If I come back to Flims, I definitely would love to stay in this apartment again. Thank you!
